Our Loan Officers

Brian Clark


After serving in the United State Marine Corps during Operation Enduring Freedom and after receiving his B.S. in Business Administration and MBA thereafter, Brian worked as a loan officer and then Assistant Vice President for a national mortgage company.

During the downturn in 2008, Brian decided to go back to school to pursue his juris doctorate. Upon graduating from law school and passing the CA Bar exam, he worked as an associate attorney for a well-known property/business law firm based in Northern California.

Using this experience, coupled with his experience in finance prior to practicing law, Brian was able to form his own mortgage and real estate company – Attorneys Funding Group, Inc. – which now compliments his real estate law firm

Raimee Ortega

Loan Officer

Born and raised in Hawaii on the beautiful island of Oahu, I am a native to the land and have grown to love what I do, which is assist my clients in anything and everything regarding mortgages and financing with regards to their real estate.

Being a loan officer that works for a mortgage brokerage has broadened my knowledge of the many types of loans that exist out there. I am licensed in multiple states (California, Colorado, and Hawaii), and can assist my clients with the most simple refinances to the most difficult types of financing.

I am also a licensed real estate agent and can handle listings/purchases with ease. Additionally, owning multiple investment properties has given me extensive knowledge in fix and flips and hands on experience when it comes to determining if a property will be a financial burden or benefit.   

All this knowledge is paired with my ability to communicate effectively and efficiently. As a self-employed individual, I understand the importance of building trust with all of my clients and grant them the ease of mind of knowing that I’m always available to answer any questions or concerns. It is that level of trust and communication that makes people want to work with me.

Ryan Bauman

Loan Officer

I began my Mortgage career in Northern Nevada in 2005, where I spent most my life growing up, so I have a deep understanding of the local area. In the summer of 2006, I decided to relocate to Las Vegas, which has been my primary residence since.

Throughout my professional career, my passion has always been Mortgage and Real Estate. However, I have also worked in Nevada Politics, as a lobbyist and campaign manager, as well as the Las Vegas Nightlife and Hospitality industry.

Over the past 15 years of my professional career, I have been able to forge and maintain invaluable relationships with mortgage lenders, elected officials, business leaders, labor leaders, lobbyists, and VIP hosts.

Having a diverse professional network throughout the entire State of Nevada has proved to be a dynamic component in being able to relate to all of my clients on a personal level, and to help ensure I provide an exceptional understanding of their family’s financing needs and goals.

Originally from a small town in Ohio, I’m an avid sports enthusiast, which helped me earn a scholarship to Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, where I played 5 years of college football and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Politics and International Relations.”
